Hi Nobles!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the Nobles and Ladies for the support you have shown me and my Lady Debbie the last four years. Thank you to all who attended the Annual Meeting for your time and support. I hope this is a great start to a year of Team Work for Zem Zem in 2020.

The side by side raffle is off to a great start, thank you to Illustrious Sir Leroy for allowing us to start selling tickets early. Chairman, John Sinopoli would appreciate any help selling tickets or information on events he can take the Side by Side to and sell tickets.

The tickets for Zem Zem’s 2020 Sportsman Raffle should have been distributed at the Club & Units meeting. We have decided to bring back the seller’s ticket to reward Nobles for their ticket sales. If you are in need of tickets, please contact me and we will see that you get tickets.

The 2020 Jewelry Jackpot is April 18th. Please mark your calendars, your help is appreciated to make this an afternoon of fun for the ladies. All proceeds from this event will be donated to the Shriners Children’s Hospital in Erie, P.O.P.S. (Pediatric Orthotic and Prosthetic Services) has been chosen at this year’s Zem Zem Ladies Project.

The Driver’s Transportation Meeting is scheduled on Saturday, February 22nd 2020 at Zem Zem Shrine Club & Colonel Drake Reverse Raffle on February 29th.

If we all work together as a team, we can accomplish great things.


Yours in Faith,
Randy Ferguson, Potentate 2020

From the First Lady:


Dear Nobles and Ladies, It is hard to believe that 2020 is finally here. Randy and I are honored to be serving Zem Zem Shrine as your Potentate and First Lady. I want to thank everyone who attended the Annual Meeting Reception and Ladies Luncheon. It was a wonderful day and thank you to everyone who went above and beyond to make it a very special day for us.

I am happy to announce this year’s Zem Zem Ladies Project-Pediatric Orthotic and Prosthetic Services (or POPS). Shriners Hospital for Children-Erie is 1 of 17 hospitals to offer this service- providing care for our patients who need prosthetic and orthotic devices from infancy to 18 years of age.


Zem Zem’s 2020 Jewelry Jackpot will be on Saturday, April 18th, 2020 and I need all of you to help support our project by selling tickets to your family, friends, co-workers and fellow shrine ladies. Invite them to come and enjoy an afternoon of fun and fellowship. If anyone is interested in donating a basket for the Chinese auction or know a business you could approach, let Jessica or myself know. Everyone’s help and enthusiasm if truly appreciated. Ladies, let’s make this a team effort.

If you need tickets, please contact Jessica Wygant, Randy or myself and we will see that you get tickets.

Thank you to everyone for your support and I look forward to a year of fun and fellowship with old friends and new ones.

In Shrine Love,
